Make a Light Take Flight

Here is how you can make light take flight:
  • Get a flashlight and turn on the light.
  • Shine the bright light high, low, left, and right.
  • Let the light move quickly to take flight.
  • Look at many sights with the light. 
Now, turn off the bright light.
Close your eyes tight.
Sleep through the night.
Dream of the sights you saw on the light’s flight.
 

Take a Flight

We can use a flashlight to make light take flight.
We shine the bright light high, low, left, and right.
We make the light move and take flight.
We see many sights with the light.
We turn off the bright light.
We close our eyes tight and sleep through the night.
We dream of the sights we saw on our flight.

Things I Do in the Light

There are lots of things I can do in the light!
I can do some things in the day’s light,
and I can do some things in the night’s light.
In day’s light, I can see a bird in flight.
In day’s light, I can see the sun shine bright.
In night’s light, I can see a firefly in flight.
In night’s light, I can see the moon's silver light.

Bright Light

We can play a game with our eyes shut tight.
Let’s shut our eyes tight.
Now it is night.
Night! Night! There is no light.
We open our eyes and see a flashlight.
We make a face that can give a fright.
What a sight!
Turn on a bright light.
Bright! Bright! It is bright.
Here and there we see a nice sight.
But with a bright light we do not see a fright.
Now we can shut our eyes tight and sleep through the night.

Fly a Kite Tonight

Tonight might be a good night to fly my kite.
It is a bright and windy night.
I hold on tight to the kite as it takes flight.
I hope my kite doesn’t fly out of sight.
What a sight when my kite is in flight.
I love to fly my kite tonight.

The Light is too Bright

I cannot sleep tonight.
The light is very bright.
The light tonight is too bright.
I turn off my lamp light.
I hide the street lights.
But my nightlight is very bright.
It is still not the right amount of light.
There is still too much light.
So I turn off my night light.
Now this is right.
Now the night is not too bright.
I can sleep tonight!

I Need a Night Light

I cannot sleep tonight.
The dark gives me a fright.
The lamp light is too bright.
A flashlight is not right.
I need a night light!
A night light is not too bright.
A night light gives the right amount of light.
A night light is just right.
I can sleep tonight if I turn on my nightlight.

Firefly Poem

Sometimes at night, before the moon shines bright . . .
     you can see a little light
     floating in the night
     floating left and right.
But don't take fright.
It's just a little bug in flight.
It carries its own light.
Lots of little lights . . .
     floating in the night.
What a sight!

Fireflies

Sometimes at night, you can see a flickering light.
You can see the light floating in the night.
You can see the light before the moon shines bright.
It seems to float left and right.
But don't take fright.
It's just a little bug in flight.
It carries its own light.
Lots of little lights float in the night.
What a sight!

Pretend it is Night

We can use our eyes to . . . 
pretend it is night,
see a flashlight,
see a frightful sight.
see a bright light.
see a nice sight,
sleep tight at night.
